Bord na Móna is proposing to develop a wind farm on Clongowany and Drinagh bogs located in Co. Offaly. The proposed wind farm will be known as Derrinlough Wind Farm.
The development of the Derrinlough Wind Farm will create an estimated 100 to 120 jobs at peak construction and 6 to 8 long term jobs in operations and maintenance.
Local communities will also benefit from additional rates paid to the Local Authority which support the provision of local services, a community benefit scheme and the upgrading of road infrastructure where necessary in the local area. Similar to Mountlucas, it is also intended to facilitate the public use of the internal roadways for recreation and amenity.
